What You'll Do

We're looking for an experienced Technical Artist who will contribute to innovative uses of the Unreal Engine on a daily basis. Your primary goal would be to empower licensees to solve technical/artistic issues in their projects and push the boundaries of the Unreal Engine.

In this role, you will

• Contribute to the ongoing development and improvement of the Unreal Engine
• Provide mentorship and coaching to team members

What we're looking for
• User-focused, passionate, self-sufficient, solutions-focused, and innovative. These traits equal success at Epic and influence everything we do
• Skilled in multiple aspects of the Unreal Editor such as: creation of sophisticated Blueprint scripts, materials, particle effects, animation setups, scene/level creation, lighting, performance optimization, virtual production, or linear/live content compositing
• Capable of performing various tech art-related tasks such as: shader development, visual effects creation, level construction, rigging and animation, procedural generation, or pipeline automation
• Strong written/verbal communication skills including the ability to train others, or give technical presentations to audiences with varying technical backgrounds
• Knowledgeable of one or more scripting languages such as HLSL, Python, MEL, or MaxScript
• Experienced in releasing 3D real-time mobile, console, or PC games; or relevant experience in Manufacturing, Architecture/Engineering/Construction, Media & Entertainment, or Training and Simulation industries
